Explore Seattle's backstreets at a comfortable pace with a sociable crowd. Every Thursday, a regular crowd of old friends and a curious crowd of new friends ride as far as evening light permits, venturing places seldom seen via routes seldom taken. We don't go looking for a challenge (we'll never ride the Counterbalance), but neither do we avoid one (we've topped a hill or two and waited for the sightseers among us). Lycra and clipless are welcome, but jeans and tennis shoes are de rigueur. Bring money for dinner afterward. Heavy rain means we eat early.
